Re Scan Veeam backup repos

19 Dec

Rescanning Simple Backup Repositories

You can rescan a backup repository configured in the backup infrastructure. Backup repository rescan may be required, for example, if you have archived backups from a backup repository to tape and deleted backup files in the backup repository. Or you have copied backups to the backup repository manually and want to work with them in Veeam Backup & Replication.

During the rescan operation, Veeam Backup & Replication gathers information about backups that are currently available in the backup repository and updates the list of backups in the configuration database.

To rescan a backup repository:

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Repositories node.
  3. In the working area, select the backup repository and click Rescan Repository on the ribbon or right-click the backup repository and select Rescan repository.

Veeam Backup service refuses to start

Veeam backup and replication service is not running

In my case I had renamed the computer from a default WIN234dfasd type name to a ‘much’ better alternative.

Veeam refers to the local computer name in a couple of registry entries and promptly stopped working – which we didn’t notice until later.

The keys are:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication\SqlServerName

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup Catalog\CatalogSharedFolderPath

Backup of the site’s Virtual Machines is now running again.
